Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Fitters: How Do You Fit Customers Who Use Jumbomax Grips?

I've seen a dramatic increase in distance and change in shot shape since installing the original Jumbomax wrap grips a couple of months ago. Especially my G400 Max driver, where I've moved from hitting straight shots with 210-220 carry with the ALTA CB55 Regular to carrying 230-240 yard draws with the CB55 Stiff.

The heavier grip has given me insight that has helped improve my swing. But, the dynamics of the heavier grip, combined with how I load the shaft has clearly changed.

Based on the above, how does a fitter work with customers using oversize grips?

    The Issue is the same for Midsize and ordinary Jumbo, and fitting should be done using the grip the player prefer, but hardly no place offer that but i did, i even had the 3 sizes Jumbo max who was on the marked then. Unless the place use compressed air on their grips on fitting shafts, you want get a offer like this.



    Unless you are a former Customer or someone i already have a PM dialog with, i want reply to tech questions on PMs.
